“Ring the bell that still can ring. Forget the perfect offering. There is a crack in everything. That’s how the light gets in.” —Leonard Cohen
One of the biggest mistakes I see wellness professionals make in the design of their healthcare or wellness space is the idea that everything has to be perfect or “I’m not going to do anything at all.”
Perfect creates blocks. Even if your space isn’t perfect, it is perfect.
Here’s what I mean:
When you have a small table in your waiting room with an assortment of herbal tea offerings, you are perfect to your patient.
With that one design change in your space, you have created a compassionate environment that speaks to the pain of your clientele.
Holding a warm cup of tea on a rainy or cold day while waiting for a doctor’s appointment can bring a wave of instant comfort reminiscent of being at home.
And when your geriatric patient waits patiently for her acupuncture appointment while you are running late, she has the opportunity to get lost in the serene artwork on your walls.
Even if the only change you make in your wellness space is a small one, it IS perfect.
My big message for you today comes from John Steinbeck who said:
“Now that you don’t have to be perfect, you can be good.”
